Spotlight – analytics with SAP S/4HANA
The move to an intelligent end-to-end digital enterprise architecture running SAP S/4HANA offers reporting and analytics opportunities never seen before. Add these opportunities of an intelligent enterprise to an ever-evolving analytics landscape with constant innovations, and it’s no wonder organizations are sometimes overwhelmed with reporting & analytics.
In response to bring in more clarity on this paradigm, SAP Enterprise Support Academy is helping customers to navigate the route to establishing an SAP S/4HANA embedded analytics reporting landscape, from strategy to application.
From late March through mid-April, the academy will be running a series of meet-the-expert webinars to help prepare you for a new mindset in mastering the ever-increasing analytics and reporting capabilities with your data. Further, the SAP Analytics Solutions value map goes beyond these upcoming sessions to provide you more assets and material, with access to insightful and open discussion forums with experts and peers. More information on the value map and access can be found at the bottom of this blog.
Here you will find the details and registration links for the upcoming webinars.
Before you can access the registration links, a one-time registration in SAP Learning Hub, edition for SAP Enterprise Support, is required. A detailed step-by step guide to registration can be found here.
This non-technical session introduces things to watch out for with reporting and analytics when going through an SAP S/4HANA implementation. It’s about a mind shift in thinking and discovering how to prepare, and the options available to best utilize the embedded analytics capabilities.
March 25th – 4PM EST
Here we move away from the general SAP S/4HANA analytics concepts to developing an actual reporting decision tree. Each decision tree is unique to each customer. In this session we will provide examples as a starting point.
April 1st – 4PM EST
Now we get to the best practices. Based on real life SAP S/4HANA implementation projects, the presenters will share their experiences with rolling out analytics with SAP S/4HANA.
- Implementation guidance, including volume analysis, custom developments and extensibility and early stage performance and sizing checks
- ABAP CDS View best practices including authorizations, semantics and extensibility
- SAP Fiori analytical apps, including advice on standard apps, customization possibilities and SAP Fiori app development.
April 7th – 10AM EST
Due to the popularity of last year’s two-part webinar, the content has been updated and is considered as essential for functional and analytical experts who are looking to gain a concrete understanding of core data service views. CDS views form the foundations for new development in SAP S/4HANA, not only in analytical applications, but also serve very much as a data source for SAP Fiori and other applications.
The following roles are strongly welcomed to attend:
- Functional Expert – for using CDS View based reporting / analytics
- Development expert – for using CDS Views as the basis for SAP S/4HANA development
- Analytics Expert – for using CDS View for analytics
